Real Madrid Grand event put on for Hazard presentation
Florentino Perez has always wanted to build a Real Madrid theme park, like the one Ferrari have in Abu Dhabi, but he still hasn’t got around to it.
It will be an urban legend, but they say that he was planning to allow a fan to play some competitive minutes for the first team for a good fee.
A Premium fan, of course. He’s already opened the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu up to Jose Maria Aznar, giving him the Real Madrid Experience with a presidential party.
This Thursday, tens of thousands of fans flocked to the Bernabeu for a presentation that was planned days in advance, so people who had nothing better to do could be there.
You could say that Florentinoland reached its peak. Perez played the audience by introducing his Galactico signing as the boy who dreamed of playing for Real Madrid.
It was an extremely momentous occasion, but the president handled it with typical aplomb.
There was an emotional video, the club hymn, former stars in the stands and plenty of happy customers.
Florentinoland is back in business after a year closed for repairs.
